11-5-12 The Obscure Richard Marx Song of the Day: Everything Good

Kicking off the 14 day countdown to the Richard Marx concert means bringing you a countdown of obscure Richard Marx songs and trivia. 

Sure, you know all the pop ballads and hum along to them in the grocery store. Maybe all you remember is the mullet. That's a shame. 

So, for the next two weeks, I will bring you the little gems you might have never heard, or perhaps weren't aware that he wrote. 

Without further adieu...

Obscure Song #14: "Everything Good", off My Own Best Enemy

Nothing like this happy little pop shuffle sound to sing things like, "Cause with you went the flowers, don't they just die anyway?"

It's like saying horrible things to the dog in that happy, high-pitched puppy voice and watching him wag his tail, oblivious.

My Own Best Enemy was his 7th album, released in 2004, dedicated to his wife, Cynthia, who Sammi was amazed to find out played Penny in Dirty Dancing. (She was also in Flashdance and Staying Alive, but neither of those seems to hold as much interest for teenagers these days.)
